Mark 14:43 And the scribes [και των γραμματεων]
Mark adds this item while John 18:3 mentions “Pharisees.” It was evidently a committee of the Sanhedrin for Judas had made his bargain with the Sanhedrin (Mark 14:1; Matthew 26:3; Luke 22:2). See discussion of the betrayal and arrest on Matthew 26:47-56 for details. [source]
Mark 12:38 Beware of the scribes [βλεπετε απο των γραμματεων]
Jesus now turns to the multitudes and to his disciples (Matthew 23:1) and warns them against the scribes and the Pharisees while they are still there to hear his denunciation. The scribes were the professional teachers of the current Judaism and were nearly all Pharisees. Mark (Mark 14:38-40) gives a mere summary sketch of this bold and terrific indictment as preserved in Matthew 23 in words that fairly blister today. Luke 20:45-47 follows Mark closely. See note on Mark 8:15 for this same use of βλεπετε απο — blepete apo with the ablative. It is usually called a translation-Hebraism, a usage not found with βλεπω — blepō in the older Greek. But the papyri give it, a vivid vernacular idiom. “Beware of the Jews” See Robertson, Grammar, p. 577. The pride of the pompous scribes is itemized by Mark: [source]
Luke 20:39 Certain of the scribes [τινες των γραμματεων]
Pharisees who greatly enjoyed this use by Jesus of a portion of the Pentateuch against the position of the Sadducees. So they praise the reply of Jesus, hostile though they are to him. [source]
